MathUSee Homeschool Math Program

Worried about homeschooling math? So was Jenn until she found MathUSee homeschool math program. Read her review of this popular curriculum to learn more...


We are about to enter our 3rd year using Math-U-See homeschool math program and we are completely happy with it! My oldest will be starting Beta and my 5yr old is finishing up Primer.

I was worried about doing math in our homeschool since I was terrible at it in school but MathUSee has helped even me re-learn some basics! The videos are very helpful for parents to better teach new concepts, the kids always watch with me as well.

Both my 7 yr old and 5 yr old (who actually started Primer at 4.5) have caught on quickly and enjoy every bit of math! I'm looking forward to many more years of MUS for all 4 of my kids!

Thanks for taking the time to post a review of MathUSee homeschool math program, Jenn. Your insight will be very helpful to parents who are unsure if they can teach math to their children. I love that you included that MUS helped you re-learn the basics! I, too, have re-learned so much alongside my children over the years. :) Blessings, Heather

MathUSee Homeschool Math Curriculum Winner

MathUSee Homeschool Math Curriculum Review

MathUSee Homeschool Math Curriculum Review

So far the MathUSee homeschool math curriculum has been a winner for our family. My school age boys are now in 2nd and 4th grade and this will be our first full homeschooling year. We did homeschool most of last year but just used an online curriculum that exposed many knowledge gaps that needed to be addressed.

I have started both boys in the Alpha book as recommended and it has done a fantastic job of filling in knowledge gaps. They loved using the blocks at first but don't really care for them much now unless they are having trouble with a concept. I think they just don't like the hassle of getting them out and putting them away. : ) My boys now look forward to math and are feeling more confident in it as well.

I love the flexibility that this program offers to go at your own pace and print out additional practice sheets online to drill the ones that they are needing more review on. The videos also allow them to do much of the work independently while I focus on whoever is needing assistance.

My boys are each working at their own individual pace and they feel so much better knowing that we won't rush on to the next lesson until they understand and we don't have to do excessive review sheets if they have already mastered the concept. The cumulative review also does a great job keeping all the past information fresh in their minds.

Overall I'd say we are pretty pleased with this choice, it fits my boys well. The only thing is I wish it were a bit less expensive but it is money well spent if it does the job!

Excellent MathUSee review, Sarah! Your comments are very informative and will give other parents who are considering Math U See homeschool math curriculum for their child/ren, some great insight. Thanks for taking the time to help others! Blessings, Heather :)

Money-saving MathUSee Homeschool Review

by Teresa
(Illinois)

Thrifty homeschooling mom shares a money-saving MathUSee homeschool review to help you learn more about this popular math program and save money...

Math U See has been a God send for my family. My children were struggling with math in traditional school. When we decided to homeschool and found Math U See, after several failed attempts, we had no more struggles. Each year's lessons cover one complete math topic (addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc). This allowed my kids to fully absorb and retain the information. Other curriculum bounced from one topic to another which my kids found very frustrating. If additional practice is necessary you can generate worksheets with an answer key from the website at no additional cost.

The program is very strong in using manipulatives. We found this helpful in the early years, but once we hit fractions (Epsilon) the children did fine just seeing the manipulatives demonstrated on the DVD. The money spent on those manipulatives was wasted. This is my only negative comment. Otherwise, the curriculum is reasonably priced, just be judicious about the manipulatives as they can rack up the cost.

Additionally, from a busy Mom's perspective, it is extremely helpful to have a DVD instructor to present the information. This is a real time saver. We started the program in Beta and are now using pre-algebra. I can't imagine using anything else.

Hi Teresa,
Thanks for the great MathUSee homeschool review, as well as your practical money-saving tips. Your thoughts are very helpful and appreciated; other parents will definitely benefit from your experience. Blessings, Heather :)

MathUSee Primer Review

by Lalia
(Everett)

Homeschooling Kindergarten? Learn more about MathUSee Primer from this helpful mom...

Last year we did the Primer course with MathUSee with my Kindergartner. It was great for him because it was visual and written. The DVD lessons were short (except for the intro). The Manipulatives are fun to play with and good for busy little fingers.

For Primer, the teacher's guide isn't really needed. I recommend the workbook, DVD, and blocks. The blocks you can keep using for several years. The DVD will resell quite nicely.

Lalia, Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with MathUSee Primer, and including some helpful tips! I appreciate it! Blessings, Heather :)

Instruction Pack for Math U See NEW
by: Susan

Thank you for writing your blog post. With Math U See the Instruction book and DVD come together. This way you can purchase it one time for all of your children. The Student book is separately and is consumable. After the Primer level the test booklet will also come with your student book in what is call the student kit. You will need one student kit per student per level. It is the only item you purchase more then one time. All of the rest of Math U See you only purchase one time for your whole family to use. Example the Instruction Pack and manipulatives. I hope this is helpful.

MathUSee Homeschooling Math Success

by Maret
(Inland Empire, CA)

I have been using MathUSee homeschooling math curriculum for three years now and think it is very user friendly and affordable.

I found the program to be good for my 5th grade daughter. She is what Cathy Duffy calls a "Wiggly Willy" and "Sociable Sue" type learner.

MathUSee is also very helpful because my daughter's learning style is "auditory". MUS comes with a DVD which teaches your child a "how to" for every new lesson for five minutes.

Thanks for taking the time to share your MathUSee homeschooling math experience with us, Maret! I appreciate it! Blessings, Heather :)
